Internet Access or Sex?

Apparently, according to this survey by Intel, nearly half of all women and 30% of all men would forgo sex for two weeks rather than lose internet access.

I will confess my first thought was whether, for the affirmative respondents, it was like asking me whether I would give up bacon for two weeks.

Briefly on WSJ Net Neutrality Dust Up

Today's WSJ had a front page story on Obama softening his support for NN, in part because Google is softening its position on NN. I discuss why the later is wrong here. TPM has a statement from the Obama transition team that Obama has not changed his policy here.

This does not mean that Obama appointees and NN advocates will always see eye-to-eye. The issue is complicated, and a wide spectrum of views exists within the NN advocacy community and among policy makers generally supportive of the concept. But it is a little early to start shouting about how they sold us out.
